2016 Election in Review - The Mission to Save US

Watch the first few minutes, it makes Meryl Streep look foolish.
John Stossel was not a Trump supporter, but he's fair! This is disheartening and enlightening. m/r

Stossel 2016 10 28 The Ruling Class

 Nov 18, 2016
Check my twitter feed @ MrReive. Red Eye will be posted there.

Fox Business Network host John Stossel is taking on “the ruling class” of politics, and their strident influence on the 2016 election. “America’s elite media, university professors, Silicone Valley — they’re all on the same side,” Mr. Stossel said. “They vote Democrat, and they insist you do too. After all, that’s what civilized people do. This year its never been more clear who the ruling class wants to elect and keep in power. They want the left in charge.” Stossel's guests include Nicholas Sarwark, chairman of the Libertarian Party; Joe Concha, media analyst for The Hill; Julian Sanchez, a senior fellow at the CATO Institute; Kat Timpf, politics reporter at National Review, and Ben Shapiro, a columnist and radio host. “OK, so they don’t call us as ‘peasants’ anymore,” Mr. Stossel wrote. “Now we are ‘deplorables’ — or conservatives or libertarians. Or Trump supporters. The elite have a lot of influence over how we see things.”
